Children and parents are constantly facing new challenges in their lives. School, social activities, and family life can bring stress, anxiety, worry, depression, and more to kids and and parents. From elementary-aged children to adolescents preparing for life after high school, the issues they face can be difficult to talk about and reaching out for help can be challenging. Changes in mood or behavior can be a sign of a deeper rooted problem. I work with children and families to understand these issues and work to find strategies that work for each individual to overcome your challenges.

My areas of practice include adults, children /teens, and families.
Life presents all of us with situations in which we’d benefit from a little support or a new perspective. Sometimes, these take the form of serious events – such as bereavement or a traumatic incident. More often, they are “everyday” challenges like relationship struggles, child or parenting issues, or work frustrations; or maybe it’s difficult even to determine the reasons behind long-standing feelings of anxiety, anger, depression, or poor self-esteem. Whatever the circumstance, seeking an objective, professional, and confidential sounding board can help clarify thoughts or patterns and make goal achievement far more likely.

As a therapist, I bring with me an extensive history working with children (0-18) in a variety of therapeutic settings.
I believe that maintaining and focusing on our mental health should be as normal as attending to our physical health, and just as important. Therapy is a way to work through the challenges of life, understand ourselves more fully, and work towards a place of wellness unique to each person. Therefore, I use multiple evidence-based modalities, coupled with a therapeutic style that is impartial, non-judgmental, and encouraging, specific to each person’s needs. I enjoy working with children , teens and adults of all stages of life. I am passionate about working with women's issues & also enjoy working through spiritual/faith issues.

Kids and teenagers encounter new challenges every day. School, sports, activities, and family dynamics can lead to anxiety, stress, and even depression. They may feel overwhelmed and struggle to talk about what is going on. They may be scared, feel embarrassed, or feel unsure of who to talk about what they are feeling. You may have noticed changes in their behavior or mood as a result. I work with kids, teenagers, and families to identify and gain understanding of what has led to their struggles and collaboratively work on how to move forward. I bring a different energy to therapy.

Child Therapists

Do I need to attend therapy with my child?

Parents are an integral part of a child’s therapy, but the specifics of their involvement vary. If your child is young, you may attend most or all sessions; if your child is older, you may attend a few sessions or none; sometimes a therapist may ask you to have a session on your own. Whatever the arrangement, you should expect to work collaboratively with the therapist, your child, and your family members to take steps to help support your child.

How long are sessions with child therapists?

Children’s therapy sessions can last 30 minutes, 45 minutes, or 60 minutes. The length of the session may depend on your child’s age and the type of therapy practiced. You can discuss this with therapists you consult and the one you ultimately move forward with.

How do I get a child to agree to seek therapy?

The best approach is to have an open-ended conversation with your child about how they’re doing and what they might be struggling with. When you raise therapy, discuss the concept in an age-appropriate way, for example explaining that a therapist’s job is to help kids handle their hard or uncomfortable feelings. Frame therapy positively, as an opportunity to explore and build emotional skills—it’s an important tool in the toolbox to help kids feel their best.

How can I tell if a therapist is a good fit for my child?

A child needs to feel comfortable opening up about their thoughts and feelings, so if your child feels a sense of comfort, ease, and trust with their therapist, that’s a great sign. In addition, a therapist is a good fit for your child if the two can communicate well together; a clinician should be able to communicate clearly, effectively, and in an age-appropriate manner.
